Italian food is comfort food for many families. Epcot is full of a large variety of international flavors but for those wishing a meal filled with delicious yet familiar options, Tutto Italia is a wonderful option to consider for your next Epcot lunch or dinner.

The first question many people looking for an Italian Epcot meal is should I book at Via Napoli or Tutto Italia? Tutto Italia has a slightly more upscale feel and menu over Via Napoli. While Via Napoli is known best for its pizza, Tutto Italia, also holding true to authentic Italian cuisine, has a fuller range of dining options, from appetizers with calamari or a variety of salads, entrees with steak or vegetarian pasta, to every one of your favorite Italian desserts.

>A formal restaurant setting with while table cloths greet you as you are seated. With a large number of indoor seats accompanied by outdoor patio seating for warm days, this restaurant feels airy and regal and can make you forget you are in the world’s largest theme park. A bread basket starts off your meal and an extensive wine list is offered to those who are of legal age.

If you are looking for more than a breadbasket for an appetizer or are on the deluxe dining plan that includes an appetizer, the Antipasto Misto, which serves two people, is a great option that includes multiple appetizer selections with one plate. You don’t need to pick between menu items as many are included in this single appetizer option.

Looking at the menu you will have a hard time deciding what to order. For those with food allergies, Tutto Italia and their chefs are very accommodating. Gluten-free pasta is available and for those with other allergies, meals can be adapted to accommodate. Ask your server for any special dining needs. For those without allergies and looking for a good steak, I highly recommend the Bistecca. The steak was cooked perfectly and the rosemary potatoes were to die for. Everyone at our table enjoyed their entrée and servings were more than enough.

While you will be full after your entrée, the desserts are too delicious to pass up. Chocolate lovers will delight in the Bacio al Cioccolato and those looking for something lighter will want to try the vanilla gelato or lemon sorbet.

Tutto Italia is located in Italy on the far side of World Showcase in Epcot. Reservations are highly recommended. Talk to your Me and The Mouse travel specialist about reserving this meal for your next visit to Epcot.
